Your ethnicity is not "white"
You may have been told that it is, but it is not. "White" is not an ethnicity.
White is a social construct. Our notion of "white people" is nothing more than an outdated concept, created for the purposes of oppression and division. The entire idea of race is no different, and stems from imperialism. It has no valid scientific basis whatsoever. It's divided humanity for centuries, and still does.
There are 87 distinct European ethnicities, like Basque, Faroese, Croat, and Dane. There is no single group called "white".
But you know what kind of people use terms like "ethnically white"? Nazis.
I'm imagining it'd be like: You play as a fledgling hero joining a new super team with America's Newest Legacy (Pauline Parsons), 5 years after the events of the tabletop games, it'd be called the All New Sentinels of the Multiverse, you'd face off with legendary villains like Omnitron but also brand new ones. Some people who inherited their powers like Legacy, and some experienced veterans like Unity and Parse, and other favorites...
BUILD A TEAM AND SAVE THE WORLD WITH THE ALL-NEW SENTINELS!
Maybe ableist attitudes, capitalism and education
We were talking about education just now. My wife was saying some of her general education teachers get suspicious of learning accommodations for students with disabilities. She says it levels the playing field. They say well isn't that grade inflation? What about the bell curve? She says why does there have to be one. Like the discussion becomes about the need to sort people into successful and unsuccessful. Good and bad. An easy life or one full of struggles. There's something they find alarming about accommodating everyone so that everyone can learn. It's as if education isn't designed for everyone to be successful, but to make sure everyone gets their "good or bad" designation
